Crimson Wing | Blu Ray | (15/03/2010)
from £5.79 | Saving you £18.20 (75.90%) | RRP
Harking back to the nature films that regularly used to inhabit video rental shops, Crimson Wing sees Disney revisiting a successful strand of its past. Under the Disney Nature banner, the documentary focuses on Lake Natron in northern Tanzania. There, directors Matthew Aeberhard and Leander Ward point their cameras at a real sight of natural beauty: flamingos. Lots and lots of flamingos. The film traces the life cycle of flamingos in a measured, absorbing, non-flashy manner, and that helps make Crimson Wing such a fascinating watch. And inevitably, it really comes into its own on Blu-ray. There?s a mixture of photography styles employed by the film, and the stunning, often-packed shots look simply superb with the aid of the 1080p transfer on offer. It?s the kind of disc that easily reminds you why you forked out for a high definition television in the first place. Don?t write off the audio, either. While Crimson Wing features a fine voiceover narration track, it also boasts some suitably enchanting music that the uncompressed audio on the disc greedily makes the most of. It?s an involving piece of work, and the surround sound track aids that in a subtle but definite way. Best of all though, Crimson Wing shines a light on creatures that don?t often feature in the limelight. And this fascinating glimpse into the lives of flamingos deserves to be watched time and time again. --Jon Foster

Arctic Circle with Bruce Parry | Blu Ray | (28/02/2011)
from £7.99 | Saving you £17.00 (68.00%) | RRP
Amazon presenter Bruce Parry turns his attention to the Arctic Circle. Indigenous ways of life that have remained virtually unchanged for millennia will cease within our lifetimes. Marine mammal hunters like the Inuit of Northern Greenland will have to find new ways to live in this harsh place. They are the last of their kind. But for others this rapidly changing world promises great opportunity. The Arctic is rich in oil gas and minerals. The US geological survey estimates that 25% of the world's undiscovered oil and gas could be located under the polar ice cap. However this series will not be a series about the politics or science of global warming. The focus will be human. Bruce and his BAFTA winning production team have found a method of telling important global stories with humour and warmth drawing a large young audience to often difficult issues. Same immersive format as Amazon with Parry embedding himself in a series of indigenous tribes plus camps of Westerners who make their living out of the region's natural resources.
